    Independent presidential candidate, Nancy Kalembe who was slated to launch her campaign today in Jinja City in eastern Uganda has postponed due to what she described as “unavoidable circumstances.”

    Kalembe said this today after delivering her letter to Jinja Police Station notifying them of her intention to use Kakindu Stadium later this week.

    The Electoral Commission yesterday released a campaign schedule for presidential candidates showing where each will start today.

    However, Alliance for National Transformation’s (ANT) Mugisha Muntu and Democratic Party (DP) candidate Nobert Mao are not on the EC campaign schedule after they reportedly failed to submit their comprehensive campaign plans to EC in time.

    Paul Bukenya, the acting EC spokesperson, warned yesterday that only candidates whose timetables have been approved are allowed to start canvassing for votes today.
    President Museveni, seeking reelection on the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party ticket to stretch his lead of the country to 40 years, is set to begin his campaign in Luweero District today and travel to Lira tomorrow.

    According to the EC schedule, Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu, alias Bobi Wine, of the National Unity Platform (NUP), will be in Pakwach, Nebbi and Arua districts today.  He will be in Kitgum, Pader and Gulu districts the following day.
    However, Bobi Wine said he will delay his campaign by a day and start tomorrow because the EC sent him the schedule late yesterday.

    According to EC guidelines, the candidates are advised to hold virtual campaigns to avoid physical contact amid the coronavirus pandemic.
